Product Description


Formerly the mastermind behind pop purists the Boo Radleys, Martin Carr's second solo collection arrived only a matter of weeks after his first extended player (Fingertip Paint Sessions Vol. I), yet it's clear that he held back some of his best material for this. Though hardly a great singer, Carr's melodic gift remains intact, and efforts such as the gorgeous Pet Sounds-influenced "Tell Her That You Want Her" and the irresistibly catchy title track--a languid, summery number gently wandering after its own naggingly familiar electric piano hook--are outstanding. Elsewhere the cheerful "Reuben" and fidgety "Where Is My Head" delight, while the arrangements, featuring everything from lumbering fuzz bass parts to primitive electronic sounds, jazzy horn parts to maudlin strings and lush harmonies are all at least intriguing. Go With Yourself is a solid collection, packed with ideas yet never losing sight of the songs themselves. --Steve Jelbert

Unfortunately, he was almost completey silent for more than a year and a half, since January 1999 and the The Boo Radleys split. Now, with a nice new name, on this mini album Martin Carr is all that can be expected from the Radleys' songwriter and guitar player (and here the singer too) - wonderful melodies, highly interesting and intelligent lyrics, strange atmosphere gently entering the hidden parts of every pop brain. On the outside these few songs are perhaps somehow cold, but when you give them a little time, their simple human warmth comes forth and takes your breath away. Because this is the best of pop music - the one directly from the soul, pure, sometimes weird, hostile and extremely friendly at the same time.
The regular album follows in October, but 'til then, well, you can only enjoy in this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wake up Mr. Pierce, there's a new kid in town! 19 Nov 2000
Format:Audio CD
Finally something comes to wake the bliss-rock community out of their three year slumber imposed by the terminal inactivity of Spiritualised HQ. Her Space Holiday have ambled bleary-eyed into the San Fran sunshine with this triumphant debut and in doing so have cast the gauntlet for the drone-rock hierarchy to follow it. The album is the perfect soundtrack for a sunday morning comedown with lazy guitar chords vying for attention alongside shuffling drums and harmonica lines that are not so much blown as exhaled......there's even the odd trumpet strewn through this delicious mix, wonderfully held together by Marc Bianchi's stoned paens to love, drugs and all that other stuff that makes life worth living. From the Velvet Underground style title track onwards this album gets more and more sublime as it extoles the virtues of the chemical life. My personal favourite is "Sleeping Pills" with its opening line,"Hallelujah for sleeping pills, Amen for a good stiff drink." and its lullaby style which is sure to send you into a lovely deep slumber......after you've stayed on till the very end letting every note caress you closer to nirvana. Never has one man's insomnia sounded quite so hypnotic. The album finishes with homecoming which is perfect "Pure Phase" era Spiritualised and sits alongside "Jesus" by the VU as two of the best hymns never sung in any church I've been to. So this album has everything it needs to nestle snugly between The Velvet Underground's eponymous classic and Jason Pierce's debut masterpiece in a blissed out triumverate of narcotic soul. Take the day off stay in bed and play on repeat....your boss will love you for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boldly step with him to the end of the universe 16 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ah, here he is again, the one and only Martin Carr, and the anxiety that's been killing me since the demise of the fabulous Boo Radleys suddenly disappeared. Actually, it started to disappear with his great mini album 'The Fingeertip Saint Sessions Vol. 1' just a few weeks before this great, strange, intensely moving full length comeback. An understated comeback, naturally, with a soft, gentle sound reminiscent of High Llamas and, of course, The Beach Boys, and only nine songs. But, how unbelievably great these songs are!
It's fair to say that he may not be the best singer ever, and Sice is still sorely missed, but since Martin dedicated all his records as Brave Captain to his former bandmates, and these new songs really shine in the dark, everything is forgiven.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb and sad 22 April 2001
By Mr. D. J. Brindle VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Classy album from HSH that must surely have Camp Spiritualized worried.
Sounding like a much more catchy, melodic and slightly more dreamy "Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Flotaing In Space" this is a truly excellent album from start to finish.
The nature and construction of the songs makes it a rather sad and depressive album though which, in my opinion, is certainly no bad thing. Certainly the tear drenched plea on final track 'Homecoming' - "sweet Baby Jesus are you there?" brings tears to the eyes and a lump to the throat.
Other excellent tracks include 'Sleeping Pills' and the story-telling "the Doctor And The DJ".
Simply a great album, tinted with a sunset of sadness.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wildly Uneven 6 Mar 2001
By WrtnWrd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As a fan of the wildly uneven releases by his former group The Boo Radleys, I didn't hold out much hope for Martin Carr's solo work, released under the aegis of Brave Captain. Indeed, as always, Carr's work on Go With Yourself veers from the successfully inventive psychedelic ballads "Tell Her That You Want Her" and "Hermit Versus the World" to a minor failure like the opening cut "The Monk Jumps Over the Wall". Even when the songs don't cohere, which is often, there's a hint of the bristling experimentalism of late period Talk Talk and the denser escapades of his former band. Yet for all my reservations, I thrill to Carr's overreaching, which reminds me more than a little bit of David Bowie circa The Man Who Sold the World. Is Brave Captain's Hunky Dory coming next? One hopes and wonders.
5.0 out of 5 stars . 7 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
buy this cd. why? well, because it's probably one of the best pop records that's been released in the past 5 years. surprisingly different from the boo radleys... but, despite the lack of sice's vocals, you know it's martin carr from the start. the slick production of the boo's last few albums is gone (martin plays the bulk of the instruments) but the songs are just as good, if not better, and the overall feel of the album is very intimate and extremely personal. i've had this record for about a week now, but have already listened to it more than almost anything i've bought in the past year... can't say enough about how good this is. buy it, damn you, buy it and give the captain your money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Martin Carr's brave side-project 14 May 2004
By Wickerlove - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As the brains behind the music of The Boo Radleys, Brave Captain provides Martin Carr more artistic freedom, a wider latitude to experiment. His side project combines everything from Aphex Twin/Mouse On Mars electronica and Flaming Lips psychadelia, to ringing industrial clanks and the Dandy Warhols-type fuzz-pop. You can sense Carr's musical thought process here, dabbling in different genres creating a pastiche of sounds and styles. Yet the CD has an undercurrent of The Boo Radleys' quirky structures and melodic wispful sound (sans trumpets and shoegaze tendencies) Martin Carr almost seemed liked a restless spirit with The Radleys, an unconventional musical visionary making music on 'his terms', which continues with side-project Brave Captain.
